Big Brother Canada Season 11 finally reached a double eviction last week, saying goodbye to both Kuzivakwashe “Kuzie” Mujakachi and Shanaya “Naynay” Carter.
As Shanaya recalled after her eviction, it wasn't a massive surprise for the houseguests.
"We had been mentally preparing for a double for like the past three weeks," Shanaya told Yahoo Canada. "We were kind of expecting the worst."
"I go between being kind of relieved that I don't have the stress and intensity of the game on my shoulders, to devastated and spiralling and overthinking, to paranoid that there was a secret plan the entire time."
After Toronto's Terrell “Ty” McDonald won his third Power of Veto (POV), he took himself off the block, with Head of Household (HoH) Renee Mior naming Kuzie as his replacement. Kuzie was evicted with a three-to-one vote.
"I was so close and silly mistakes got me here, but I appreciate the experience and proud of myself [for] everything that I've done, and what I think I have achieved," Kuzie said. "I don't know whether it's looking good or it's looking bad out there, but I did exactly what I said [I would] do."
After host Arisa Cox revealed the double eviction, Prince Edward Island's Claudia Campbell won the "Scream of the Crime” trivia competition, making her HoH.
Claudia nominated Toronto's Daniel Clarke and Saskatoon's Anika Mysha, but veto star Ty used his POV to save Anika, making Shanaya her replacement, who was ultimately evicted.
"If there's anything I would change about my strategy, maybe being a little less caring about everybody because that gets exhausting," Shanaya said. "It's exhausting caring so much about hurting people or ruining people's dreams."
"But I know that's not really realistic for me, it's in my nature to do that."
Looking back at her time in the Big Brother Canada house, Kuzie wishes she would have switched up her alliance decision earlier in the game.
"I would have aligned myself with Santina [Carlson] way earlier and stronger," Kuzie said. "I think that's somebody that I missed, she's the girl alliance that I needed."
Queen Kuzie feels 'betrayed'
When it comes to who in the house the evicted houseguests believe can't be trusted, Shanaya admitted that she "always had a very hard time trusting Ty."
"I feel the least amount of trust with Ty, even prior to him pulling this whole thing to get me out of the house," she said.
"I don't think he's an untrustworthy person, in fact I think the opposite. But given our relationship, I just at no point in the game felt that he truly had my best intentions, and nor did I have his. So we didn't quite meet in that way."
From Kuzie's perspective, she feels like Daniel is the most untrustworthy person left in the house.
"Just because I expected a lot more from him and he didn't give me that, so I feel betrayed," Kuzie said.
"It's only because we were that close that I do feel like that. I don't think if he did that to anybody else they would feel particularly betrayed."
In terms of outstanding questions in Big Brother Canada, many are wondering what's going to happen to Claudia's game, after regularly being closely aligned with Shanaya.
"I think her putting her best friend on the block might shake Daniel C and Anika's trust and view of her," Shanaya said. "I think she will be seen more as a target now, perhaps, than she was before, because one, she won another HoH and two, it kind of shows that she's willing to do anything."
"It's clear to me that Ty, Renee and Claudia will be working together going forward. So either this decision will catapult her to the end or she'll have a stroke of bad luck, and Daniel C and Anika may get power and they may send her packing if they can't get out Ty."
Who is most likely to win 'Big Brother Canada' Season 11?
Looking to the end of the game, Kuzie and Shanaya are aligned on who they think is most likely to win Big Brother Canada Season 11.
"I think most likely to win, if everything balances, is Ty," Kuzie said.
"I hate to say it but Ty is a force to be reckoned with," Shanaya indicated in a separate interview. "He is so hard to beat in these comps."
"Truth be told, if he makes it to the end, I will begrudgingly vote for him. His game has been amazing. He's been on his own basically since Dan [Szabo] left the house and he's still there. He's still fighting. So although I will be a little bitter, I can see Ty winning this whole thing, but I kind of want it to be Daniel."
